Interview Miss Made : Minimalist Design - La Chambre Paris

Yasmina, creator of Miss Made is a mom who shares her passion for minimalist decor on the networks. Inspired by white and simple designs, we went to meet her to learn more about her world.

1. What got you interested in decorating? Did you train as an interior designer?

I love decorating because it is something I am passionate about. I used to consume a lot in decoration but with age and maturity I have been able to find unique pieces, with a story, which make my interior please me, correspond to me even if we often hear that a minimalist interior is cold and lifeless. This is a big lie.
As long as there is life in an interior, a soul, then it is a warm place. Now yes, when you decorate without your own personality and copy and paste from Pinterest, I confirm the interior will have no soul. Whether it's a minimalist bohemian oriental decor or something else.

2. How did you get into minimalism? Can you tell us more about this trend?

Well, I've never been attached to objects, but as I've gotten older, talked to my husband and gotten closer to my religion, I've realized that all these material things are absolutely nothing. Everything is ephemeral in this life. So, we might as well spend our time on the most important things rather than on all these useless trinkets. Like spending your days tidying and cleaning.

3. Why this attraction to white?

White brings me peace, serenity. It's my breath of fresh air every moment of the day. White illuminates and enlarges so much that I couldn't get enough of it.

4. How do you maintain your home with children? What is your vision of decorating now that you are a mom?

With 3 kids (7, 4 and 1 year old), it's not that complicated. Whether it's a white or black interior, you set the rules for life. As soon as there's a stain in my house, everything can be removed from its cover with a quick trip to the washing machine and it's all sorted.

5. Do you have an aversion to colors or do you sometimes integrate them into your daily life?

I like touches of green from plants and I'm crazy about your super hot grey satin sheets.

6. Do you have any advice for people who also want to decorate their room in a minimalist way?

My advice is to keep only the essentials. A bedroom is for sleeping with a quality bed and sheets that will last you a long time. If you want, you can add a small bedside table but we tend to store things on it so it gets cluttered quickly.

7. What is your dream room and what is the one you own that you are the most fond of?

My dream room would be a laundry room and the one I love most about my house is my bathroom.

8. On a day-to-day basis, do you consider yourself more of a "night owl" or are you more of a "lift the chickens" type of person?

I am both. I go to bed around midnight or 1am and get up at 7am. This is a rhythm that I could largely change because my kids are in bed by 8pm. But every night, as soon as they're in bed, it's my time so I make the most of it.

9. What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Do you have a morning routine?

I air my house and light my candles. For me, there is nothing more important than an airy and smelly house. It's my number one reflex.

10. What is the last thing you do before going to bed? Do you have a nightly routine?

The last thing I do before I go to bed is put away the blankets and all the little things that are lying around. I like to wake up and go to bed in a tidy and clean house.

11. What books can we find on your night table?

None because I don't have bedside tables. Joking aside I really like books on minimalism but I never read them all the way through.

12. Are you in favour of screens before sleeping?

So no I don't recommend screens before bed even though I do it every night. Sometimes I try not to go to bed with my phone because it always ends up in nightly internet commands.
